Mini road trip....


Friend B.K. and I took off yesterday morn after grabbing a cuppa; road trip to town to run an errand she had to run, then we went to the Farmer's Market. The Market was way cool and gave me many ideas for my yard. I'm going to finish my back yard into a Sanctuary Garden...just need to add a few things and do my art stuff. I have mosaic ideas for fountain and benches and "rooms" to put back there, all in keeping with the paths that Gracie has chosen for herself. I've observed where stuff grows, and really just need to throw in a few more dog-friendly plants, and mulch, and then, let it do its own thing, or rather, God's own thing.

Anyway, it was 2 ADD women in a car with espresso, way fun! (my kids, by the way, were fast asleep on Mom's Day....hubby made me breakfast) B.K is funny and very creative; she does some radio stuff and is very active in many endeavors and works hard. I figured she was alone on Mom's Day with her daughter living elsewhere, so off we went. Then family and I went to see hubby's mom, who is doing well.

This morning, I'm just a tad anxious, don't know why. Maybe it's still the death things that are bothering me, and I'm going to try to shake it off. In a minute will grout table, and go gather supplies to do a wall finish at a client's house.

I guess when we approach those decade markers (I'll be 50 next year) we realize our mortality. Of course, finding someone exactly your age dead in their living room probably adds to that anxiety. I can't control my own demise; short of exercising proper caution in living; and that both bothers and comforts me. Trying to get to a place where it just comforts me would be really nice.
